A former Cu-Ag occurrence/mine located in T37N, R9E, G&SRM, 10.1 km (6.3 miles) E of White Mesa (coordinates of record), 11 miles due E of highway 89 and 10 miles E of the Echo Cliffs monocline.

Mineralization is a Cu-Ag deposit hosted in the Late Jurassic Navajo Sandstone with a tabular ore body, and occurs mostly on NNW-trending joints. local rocks include rocks of the Glen Canyon Group.

Workings include surface and underground exploratory openings comprised of 3 shafts and some trenches.

Analysis test results: 6 samples from the N end of the claim showed 0.18 ounce Ag and 0.54% Cu.
